Getting to the exit during a fire
Check closed doors for heat before you open them. Use the back of your hand to feel the top of the door, the doorknob, and the crack between the door and door frame before you open it. Never use the palm of your hand or fingers to test for heat. Burning those areas could impair your ability to escape a fire (i.e., ladders and crawling).
Stay low to the floor, crawling under any smoke to your exit. Heavy smoke and poisonous gases collect first along the ceiling.
Close doors behind you as you escape to delay the spread of the fire.
Once you’re safely out, stay out. Do not reenter. Call 911.
